Introduction
I study digitalization and smartphone use in social settings. My research draws from naturalistic video recordings analyzed with ethnomethodological conversation analysis, multi-method online experiments, and surveys. I've developed the concepts of Sticky Media Device, Bystander Inaccessibility, and Smartphone Moves to depict new aspects of social encounters in the mobile digital age. I popularize my work in media & social media, and work as an expert consultant in private and public sectors.

Smartphone use has changed patterns of online and offline interaction. Phubbing (i.e., looking at one’s phone instead of paying attention to others) is an increasingly recognized phenomenon in offline interaction. We examined whether people who phub are more likely to have lower social intelligence, whether phubbing is considered more annoying than...
Article
Full-text available
Smartphones are often spontaneously used for personal purposes and during face-to-face gatherings. New terms like “phubbing” and “technoference” describe negative consequences of this behavior, but analysis of the actual everyday social situations where smartphones feature has largely been neglected. This article shows how simultaneous smartphone a...

Poster

This poster presents the embodied practices of people simultaneously interacting with their smartphones and each other in casual settings. It uses 10 clear photo-cartoons to show how changing one's bodily configurations with a smartphone also adjusts the face-to-face conversational engagement and participation framework of the situation. The poste...

The global crisis caused by the outbreak of a novel coronavirus and the associated disease (COVID-19) has changed working conditions due to social-distancing policies.

Esittelen kehittämääni mallia seksuaalisesta tyytymättömyydestä sekä sen käyttämistä seksuaalineuvonnassa. Malli yhdistää evoluutiopsykologian ja Tomasellon (2015) tutkimustulokset ihmismielen erityislaadusta. Mallin mukaan vaikeus löytää tyytymättömyydestä vapaata seksuaalisen käyttäytymisen järjestelmää juontaa juurensa väistämättömään ristiriita...

Smartphones, the ubiquitous mobile screens now normal parts of everyday social situations, have created a kind of ongoing natural experiment for social scien-tists. According to Garfinkel’s ethnomethodology social action gets its meaning not only from its content but also through its context. Mobility, small screen size, and the habitual way of usi...

Smartphone use has grown rapidly, but the ways it shapes concurrent face-to-face interaction remains scarcely studied. In our research we have formulated two new concepts to depict this: 1) Sticky media device illustrates situations in which a person using a screen media device is difficult to get fully involved with ongoing face-to-face conversati...

Älypuhelimen käyttö on lisääntynyt nopeasti. Se on henkilökohtainen esine ja kulkee yleensä aina mukana. Siksi sen käyttö voi sijoittua keskelle melkein mitä tahansa vuorovaikutuskontekstia, varsinkin kun laite usein myös kutsuu äänen, värinän tai visuaalisten efektien avulla omistajaansa. Jatkuvasti käsillä olevat älypuhelimet ovat vaikuttaneet my...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The hampering effects of smartphone use to concurrent face-to-face -interaction have been conceptualized as “Sticky Media Device”, and concern has been raised about parental smartphone use in particular. Why would parental smartphone use as a source of parental distraction differ from for example reading a book or fixing a coffee machine? We explai...
Presentation
Full-text available
The presentation tackled the question: how does concurrency of smartphone use and co-located social interaction intertwine in the social situation? Interacting with a smartphone in the presence of others is commonplace. It often happens in situations where also face-to-face interaction could, or is taking place. Yet, there are barely any research o...

Digital technologies and media have changed the daily lives of families around the world by creating new interactional contexts and relational patterns (e.g. Wartella et al. 2013; Ólafsson et al. 2013). The familial use of digital media has quickly formed anew the structure, function and mentality of family interaction. Smartphones are the flagship...
Chapter
Full-text available
The dynamics of day-to-day interaction are based on various shared norms of conduct. These common rules are intertwined with the moral structures that members of society are expected to follow. In this chapter, we show how a parent’s smartphone use can bring additional ambiguity and difficulty to communicating with his or her child and in fact chal...

Question
I once saw a chart depicting how the number of #emca publications has grown in 20 years or something. I can no longer remember where I saw it nor find again. Do you remember seeing a diagram or a chart like this somewhere, or even know where I could get the information in order to make the diagram myself?
